Michigan State Basketball: Can Spartans slow Russell

Earlier in the week, Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo said the Spartans would be playing a box four zone, and one player on a man in order to compensate for Ohio State’s freshman phenom D’Angelo Russell. “We’re gonna play a box-and-one — box on him and one on the other four,” Tom Izzo said jokingly. However, trying to stop Russell is no laughing matter. No one has been...

Michigan State Spartans’ Basketball Team Needs Mid-Season Heart Transplant Most of All

It’s pushing towards the middle of February, and the 2014-15 Michigan State Spartans’ basketball team still doesn’t have a true identity.
